Team Captain. First Team All-State. Champion All-American. Defensive Player of the Year. Senior Class President. Three Time State Champion. These are just a few of the career highlights of Chase Cowan. A team can not achieve National Recognition with out a team of dedicated, talented and hard working athletes. Chase was one of the integral, relentless defensive players that led Salesianum to their third consecutive state championship while also playing the toughest schedule in history to break the top 20 in national rankings. His presence on the field was felt by every opponent attempting to come close to the goal.
Chase’s passion for his school and his lacrosse team led him to insist there had to be more that could be done for the Savannah Strong foundation. Savannah Strong is a cause that is near and dear to the heart of every coach, player, fan & parent of Salesianum Lacrosse. Just as Chase does not stand on the sidelines at the game, he refused to stand on the sidelines and wait for someone else to do more. Chase wanted to bring more awareness and raise more money for childhood cancer and Savannah Strong. He brought that to life in his now infamous, Savannah Tie. The Savannah Tie is a direct reflection of a Salesian Gentleman and his passion for a cause. The tie showcases the beloved pink turtle which is the iconic symbol of Savannah Strong. Chase has raised money for more than 2 years by selling the ties at games, school, The Pink Turtle boutique and on the website tied2acause.com. The website Chase created just to showcase the tie and tell the story of how it came to fruition.
Chase started his collegiate career this fall at Colgate University where he will continue to play lacrosse. His talents will be sorely missed on the Sallies field next season, but we are excited to see what this next chapter in Chase’s life holds for him. We produced Chase’s recruitment film in 2011 and this year, as his senior year came to a close, his parents requested a cinematic highlight of the last two years. They wanted a keepsake of his junior and senior year that they could use to enjoy and relive those exciting moments of his high school career. We at Nkognito would like to thank Chase and his family for letting us do our small part for his recruitment process and for allowing us to produce this keepsake for you. It has been a pleasure working with you all and we look forward to doing so again in the future. Please enjoy this cinematic two year highlight of one of the top defensemen to play high school lacrosse.
